Capturing the peaceful yet magical feel of a typical Christmas Eve is the idea behind the online slot machine game. Christmas Eve is a unique slot that can make even the most skeptical player a believer in the magic of the holiday.
The distinct lack of reels in this game gives it a relaxing, dreamlike pace that many frazzled players find soothing. The game’s background scene is a lit up village on the night before Christmas. The village is covered in beautiful white snow and features twinkling Christmas trees as well as chimneys with smoke rising out of them.
Though the game includes the traditional letter symbols in Christmas Eve they are decorated to look like gingerbread. Other symbols used in the game include snow globes, candles, star shaped ornaments, houses, bells and even icing.
The special features used include a gift wrapped in green paper, which is called the Frosty Wild. When players get this symbol they get a free spin in which the symbol stays in place. As Santa Claus is the game’s scatter symbol, players that get three of him on the reels after a single spin get 10 free spins while four Santas give 15 free spins and five Santas give 20 free spins. Lucky players may find their free spins being retriggered during this round. Even without a re-spin players will win money. Even luckier players that get five Santas on the reels win the game’s non-progressive jackpot.
The game’s Gift Wild is represented by a teddy bear with gifts that have been wrapped. This symbol only appears on the reels when free spins are being played and stays in the same position for the duration of the spins. When players win multiple times during free spins they get a multiplier that gets them two, three, four or five times more than what they bet on that spin.
